The Margrave is a hero appearing in Gigantic.

Official Summary[edit | edit source]

"They cheered the Margrave's victory over the demon, but the cheers turned to gasps when they saw the Margrave's missing hand. Then the gasps turned to cries of horror as the Margrave ripped the forearm from the demon's corpse and grafted it into place."

Official Rating Summary[edit | edit source]

While middling in most stats, The Margrave is clearly best at defense. This is mirrored in his abilities and playstyles, suggesting that The Margrave is meant to function more as a tank than a DPS or Utility character. Accordingly, players seeking to absorb damage while mitigating enemy cooperation would be best suited for The Margrave.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Margrave is a tank-centric hero, akin to a stone wall more so than a sharp edge.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Margrave is really the only tank in Gigantic, and his stats are there to prove it. While his attack is middling, he has certain skills that allow for leaps that disorient and damage in equal part. He is best used as a damage sponge, though, and can't hold his own for too long without having some DPS behind him to negate the defense of the other team. Pair him with Vadasi or Uncle Sven to extend his survivability to ridiculous amounts.

Skins[edit | edit source]

The Margrave has a variety of skins from which to choose. These skins do not change skill sets or abilities, and appear to be strictly cosmetic. This list is based on the open beta, and will be re-visited once the game releases.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Hellburst is a great move to protect weaker allies, as it creates a field that they can fire through (but others can't).
  • Use your bulk to block enemies escape routes, especially in tight corridors or limited spaces.
  • Staggering Leap has a huge travel distance, and that's amplified even more when used atop a ledge.
  • Even though you can take a ton of damage, you're not invincible, and can very quickly be overwhelmed.
  • When upgraded, Charge Forth throws enemies behind you, which is great for negating a threat or removing an obstacle.
  • The Margrave can leap to a lot of secret locations and ledges, which is not only powerful for movement, but for catching the enemy by surprise.
  • The Margrave is a tank, so you really need to be leading your team forward. That being said, don't go alone, as without support, you can be easily wiped out.
  • Jump just before Charge Forth, as this amounts to "sprinting" through the air.
  • Use either Leap or Charge in each engagement - the other should be saved as an escape move.
  • Hellburst does a ton of damage if you can get near enough to use it. Use it in AoE fields to bounce and direct the damage to the enemies within.
